Magic bands

Our magic bands were just delivered! We are so excited for our stay at Pop next month and can't wait to try the magic bands!

I'm waiting for mine to say shipped! My deadline to personalize them was Saturday. When I check MDE it says "you have 0 Magic Bands to personalize", but my FP+ reservations are still there.

It's so exciting! We haven't figured out our fast pass + yet
We have never been big fast pass users except for the safari at AK and TSM at HS so choosing the rides and times is a little overwhelming to us. We definitely want to pick some so we can truly test the new system but we are having a hard time commiting to the times! Any advice would be great!

For us, I know that we will be taking pool breaks after an early lunch (goal is to eat lunch around 11am). I know my kids' favorites at MK, so I made sure to get FP for those for our first MK day. They are back-to-back FP times, all before 1pm.
On our Epcot FW day, I got FPs for the big ones, TT and Soarin', with the character spot in between. Again, these are all done by noon.
On my last MK day, I was able to get FPs for both parades and Wishes, so we will likely not come to the park until 2pm.
This will be a leisurely touring trip for us, so the days we use up our FPs by early afternoon, we will likely not return to the park and do something else in the evening (putt-putt, DTD, Movie Under the Stars, etc.)

If I were commando touring or going at a cooler time of year, I might have chosen differently.

Sadly, no. My kids were VERY sad when they were removed. They were replaced with iced tea dispensers.

Summit Cheer in May 2014

Can someone tell me how the Summit Cheerleading impacts Pop Century? We are looking to go April 27th or the following weekend of May 3rd or 4th I believe. I know that first weekend of the 27th is Cheer Worlds and then the following is Summit Cheer. We have never stayed value and am a bit concerned about these dates and having mobs of cheerleaders at Pop!

Bummer! That was one of the best features. Thanks for the reply!

Thanks for sharing your strategy for choosing and planning your fast passes. I need to sit down with our ADR schedule and decide which days will be commando and which days will be slower paced and go from there. Thanks again!

The frozen coke machines were removed many years ago. Even when they were there, they worked only about 1/2 the time.

Yep, they've been gone since at least April 2009. http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2159724

I'm certainly no expert as we just returned from our first stay at POP but I'll share our experience. We requested 50's section/building #3/lakeview. We got just what we requested and were placed on the "back" side of the Tramp building. We were on the second floor so not exactly "lakeview" except for thru the trees. It was a pretty view though. I more wanted a non pool view room than the actual lakeview.

I don't know that I would do it by requesting a specific room number. If that room is not available then they don't really know what you were looking for. As others on here have suggested, I would have your requests in the order of importance noted on your reservation. You can always ask for a different room if the one assigned is not what you want.

Thank you! That is what I was wondering. I was going to use a room number for reference. But didn't think about just saying lake view. That would be easier. Thanks again!
